Event Details

Dear Colleague,

The Biomarker Summit 2015, to be held on March 18-20, 2015 in San Diego, CA at the Westin San Diego Hotel, is a meeting place for leaders in the field to discuss the issues and challenges scientists and researchers face in all aspects of the biomarker and diagnostic development process from discovery to translation to commercialization.

A wide variety of important topics will be covered including biomarker identification, validation, and translation strategies, bioinformatics and systems biology approaches to personalized medicine, big data analytics and management, regulatory and reimbursement trends, companion diagnostics development, and much more. Through scientific presentations, case studies and panel discussions, these areas will be addressed in an intimate and highly interactive environment with perspectives from industry, academia and the public sector.

Assembling leading scientists, researchers, decision-makers and other players across the industry spectrum, the Summit provides a unique opportunity to gain the latest biomarker developments in three major therapeutic areas, formally organized in the following tracks:

General Sessions (Joint):
I. Plenary Keynote Session
II. Big Data Analytics for Biomarkers Development
III. Novel Technologies in Biomarker Development
IV. Overcoming Challenges of Clinical Validation & Translation
V. Panel Discussion: Companion Diagnostics Development & Partnering Strategies
VI. Panel Discussion: Non-profits Perspectives on Biomarkers
VII. Panel Discussion: Regulatory & Reimbursement Trends in Biomarker Development
